Teatro Real: Antonio Gades: Bodas de Sangre (Blood Wedding)
Bodas de sangre (Blood Wedding), choreographed by Antonio Gades in 1974, depicts the story written by Federico Garcia Lorca of a bride who, on her wedding night, runs away with her former lover, now a married man with a child of his own. The furious groom follows them, and a fight to the death ensues between the two men. This ballet without words is the essence of the work of Federico Garcia Lorca, a poet and playwright whose vision here melded with that of a profound and ancient Spain. Both performances, Bodas de Sangre and Suite Flamenca were filmed at the Teatro Real, Madrid, to mark the 75th anniversary of Gades' birth.
